@El_MUERkO Its next on my list after i finish the Farseer trilogy
I had the same sort of emotional feelings when i finished the Sword of Truth series last year!
It's odd to me, I could write for a long time on the importance of those books to me as a young teenager, not having an ending for so long allowed me to imagine so much for the characters and for myself, allowed me to forget my troubles for a while.
I've been saying to myself for some time that I would re-read the books once I'd finished the last of them, but I'm not sure I will. They're part of my history, memories are framed around them, to read them all again would disrupt that.
And the characters whose endings I now know, could I experience them in the same way if I read the books again? I am left melancholy by the thought that their story truly ends now, Robert Jordan is dead and the only writing he was considering was a prequel trilogy, a two paragraph description Sanderson and Jordan's wife agreed not to expand upon.
It leaves me feeling a little lonely, I had a friend and now they're gone.
I think maybe I'll come back to the wheel of time when my son is old enough to be read to, I hope he'll enjoy them as much as I have.
